It's always a hard decision trying to decide what you should keep and what you should throw away when it comes to decluttering your life. We are here to help. We really don't want to see you in an episode of "Hoarders" next season.
16 Things You Should Throw Away Immediately:
1. Obsolete Technology
Why would you hang onto these things? Unless you plan on opening an Outdated Tech Museum, toss it!
2. Boots That Are Beyond Repair
If you have to duct tape your boots together, it's time for a new pair. We don't care how broken in they are!
Time for new boots?
3. Expired Cosmetics
Not only are they messy, they also harbor unsafe bacteria that cause breakouts or real issues such a gnarly eye infection. Toss. Them. Now.
4. Your Kitchen Sponge
Speaking of harboring bacteria, a kitchen sponge is a bacterial playground. Replace them at least once per month.
5. Worn Out Socks
Want to keep your feet happy? Don't wear socks like these! Just throw them away, socks are cheap.
Talk about Unhappy Feet! It's a sign!! Lol! #holeysocks #footsies

6. Outdated Clothing
Most likely, you aren't going to wear outdated clothing. If nothing else, sell it online to someone who will!
7. Wire Hangers
Remember when we listed Shocking Ways You are Ruining Your Clothes? Wire hangers were on the list.
8. Old Magazines
For some reason, these really stack up in our homes. But they take up unnecessary space and face it. You are never going back to read that article.
9. Unfinished Pinterest Projects
If you have multiple of these unfinished projects laying around, it's time to face the music. You aren't going to finish them. It's time to let them go.
10. Broken Appliances
It's not worth the repair bill to have them fixed and you sure don't need them cluttering up the space. Time to say goodbye. We know it hurts.
11. Broken Toys
If your kids are like our kids, they have too much stuff anyway. Trust us when we say they aren't going to miss the one-armed Gremlin.
12. Your Toothbrush
If your toothbrush looks like these, it's time to toss them. Just kidding. But really. You are supposed to change your toothbrush every 3 months. Really.
13. Dead Batteries
They aren't coming back to life. Toss them, responsibly, of course. But get rid of them!
14. 99.9 Percent of Items in Your Junk Drawer
We all have one, but most of the stuff needs to go. Come on, you can do it!
15. Expired Meds
Yep. Medications expire. And they can be become dangerously overly potent (or completely ineffective) either way, you don't want to risk it.
16. Expired Food
You will be amazed at what all you find that is way beyond expired when you clean out the pantry. It's a little scary!
Miley Cyrus' new album Younger Now promises to bring Miley Cyrus back to country music. In preparation for the album Miley has softened her image and bought a palatial country home in Nashville signaling that she truly desires to return to the music heritage of her youth. The first single off the album is the title track is a love letter written to country fans defending her past and laying out a hope for her future.
Taylor Swift's Web site is blank. Her Twitter profile exists, but there's no profile picture-- same goes for Facebook. Don't get me started on her Instagram-- she deleted all of the photos.
Just days ago Swift won her sexual assault case against a Denver DJ who groped her before a 2013 concert. Before that, we saw Swift in February during her only scheduled concert of the year. There was a brief commotion over the possibility of her being carried out of her New York City apartment in a suitcase and she supposedly has a new boyfriend, but really-- Swift has been totally off-the-grid.
Swift hasn't tweeted since May and her few Instagram posts this year were about new music from friends.
But, now a total blackout of her online existence? It can only mean one thing-- she's about to shut it down, only to bring it back to life like never before.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Swift because this is going to be epic.
Kelsea Ballerini knows what's up. Not only has she become a massive country music star in the last couple of years, she's also becoming known for her down-to-earth advice and very approachable vibe. A couple of years ago, people started comparing her legs to Carrie Underwood's-- a compliment for the ages, sure. But, when asked her workout routine she just said she walks her dog and tries to go easy on the chicken tenders every now and then. (Results definitely not guaranteed.)
When it comes to beauty advice, Kelsea's not trying to talk about some product you can only buy in France under a bridge from someone who once walked past Gwyneth Paltrow-- she's throwing out real helpful advice.
Kelsea told the Grand Ole Opry that it's all about washing your face-- simple, yet effective.
But, really, she started slinging knowledge when she shared some advice from her mom, "My mom told me when I was younger... you either play up the eyes or the lip, but you can't do both because you'd look crazy."
This is the type of advice that should hang on the walls of middle schools everywhere-- kind of like the "hang in there" cat poster.
Everywhere you turn these days there is excitement for the solar eclipse. I can't blame people either. A total solar eclipse is a once-in-a-generation event so unique that people take vacations and travel oversees to catch them. But with all the buzz about the solar event, a lot of us still don't know exactly what it is. So who better to educate us that 8 year-old genius and Global Science Ambassador Romanieo Golphin, Jr?
Kip Moore's Video for "The Bull" Is a Wild Ride That Will Remind You Life is About the Ups AND the Downs
Kip Moore doesn't usually record songs he didn't write. But once you hear "The Bull," you'll immediately understand why he chose to perform this outside song.
Jimmy Kimmel recently spoke out against white supremacy during a late night monologue and upset a lot of people. Our publishing of said monologue created the same effect. Instead of going at his detractors with bared teeth, Kimmel simply read their thoughts out loud on air while blurring out their names, noting where they were right, and where they erred. If there's one thing that can begin to heal our differences it's a rational, calm, conversation.
